"Strong Girls"

Amanda McAlpine

"Training has had life-changing impact in my life.  In addition to learning many transferable skills and experiencing many health benefits of Martial Arts and strength training, I have immense gratitude for the lessons that have been learned 'along the way.'   I have learned how to increase resilience, improve strength, feel peace, be happy, and experience greater abundance in life.  I have been given incredible tools to live a happier, more peaceful life.  It is my hope that I can 'pay it forward' gratitude... and help others experience positive change as well."

Thank-you for sharing the journey with me!
